El Tatio is a geyser field located within the Andes Mountains of northern Chile. The geothermal field covers an area of 30 square kilometers (12 sq miles) at an elevation of 4,200 meters (13,800 ft), and is characterized by fumaroles (smoke from the geysers) that create amazing white steam columns , hot springs, steam vents and mud pools that are often bubbling.
